    Read his scouting report here.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Heathcott. Some reports say that he plays with an all-out intensity in the vein of Mike Trout and . And, others say that he has a terrible attitude and no work ethic. This will be a big year for him in terms of seeing what he is all about…

      Who says that? Every single thing I’ve ever read or heard about Heathcott has suggested nothing of the sort.

      The issue with Heathcott is can he stay healthy.

      The ability to stay healthy is also partly a skill. The player has to learn that baseball is not football; there is another game the next day and the next day and the next day and the day after that…

      Sorry but that’s absurd. Name the source.

      @ MJ Recanati:
      I promised the source that I would not.

      Unless the source is Brian Cashman, Damon Oppenheimer, or Mark Newman then your source is flapping his gums or speaking subjectively.

      As I said in the post, time will tell.

      Even if Steve has a pro baseball source, that’s just one viewpoint. The consensus on Heathcott is that he plays all-out on the field, to the point where his reckless style leads to injuries. That is, as others have said above, the big concern.
